Plot Sypnosis:

DUNE - THE DESERT PLANET is the greatest science fiction epic of all time. Even though David Lynch distanced himself from his work because he was denied the right to the 'Final Cut', he directed a powerful adaptation of Frank Herbert's cult novel. In addition to Kyle MacLachlan, who later played the leading roles in BLUE VELVET and TWIN PEAKS for Lynch, Francesca Annis, Jürgen Prochnow, Max von Sydow, Patrick Stewart and Sting stood in front of the camera of Oscar(R) winner Freddie Francis. The legendary soundtrack is by Toto and Brian Eno.
